Kimi ga Nozomu Eien's title (君が望む永遠), due to its length, is usually reduced to "君望". This is officially read as "Kimibou", but many read it as "Kiminozo" instead. Both abbreviations are now considered to be acceptable, with "Kiminozo" being officially written as "君のぞ" instead (this is used in Kiminozo Radio). Early English-speaking fans of the series often shorten the title to "KGNE".

Takayuki Narumi (鳴海 孝之 Narumi Takayuki)?, (Seiyū: Kishō Taniyama, VA: Kevin M. Connolly)
The protagonist. Takayuki Narumi met Haruka through Mitsuki setting them up during high school. When he witnesses the fresh scene where Haruka is badly injured in an accident, he develops Post Tramatic Stress Disorder comorbid with depression. Later in the story, he works at a restaurant chain owned by the Sky Temple financial group called "The Family Restaurant" after having regressed in his studies due to the accident. In Haruka's absence, he gradually begins to develop a relationship with Mitsuki. But as the story plays on, he is faced with questions and decisions that would drive a normal person to the brink of insanity.
Haruka Suzumiya (涼宮 遙 Suzumiya Haruka)?, (Seiyū: Minami Kuribayashi, VA: Carrie Savage)
A shy, timid girl; Mitsuki helps set her up with Takayuki, whereupon they fell in love with each other. Her hobbies are collecting picture books and drawing. She is involved in a serious car accident and ends up in a coma. The main part of the story starts when she awakens three years later. She is afflicted with anterograde amnesia and because of her delicate psyche, her family and Takayuki conceal the truth that three years have passed, despite Haruka's increasing suspicions that more time has passed than they allow her to believe. Towards the end of the series, Akane, under a great deal of stress, reveals the truth and Haruka falls unconscious. When she awakens again, the antegrade amnesia is gone, but she has forgotten everything that happened between the two comas including falling deeply in love with Takayuki (In the English dub) and her family chooses to reveal the truth this time.
Mitsuki Hayase (速瀬 水月 Hayase Mitsuki)?, (Seiyū: Chiaki Takahashi, credited as Tomoko Ishibashi; VA: Colleen Clinkenbeard)
Mitsuki is friends with both Takayuki and Haruka, but secretly she has feelings for Takayuki. In high school, she was a strong swimmer and tomboy, but shortly after Takayuki and Haruka's relationship begins to develop and the accident happens, she finds herself leaving swimming to tend to Takayuki and his delicate state. She throws herself at Takayuki when he fails to climb out of his depression and reveals her feelings for him. Mitsuki is well-meaning, but suppresses her feelings, allowing them to bottle up and explode in dangerous ways. She believes herself responsible for her friend's accident, as she was the main reason why Takayuki was late for his date with Haruka. She is also torn by her deep friendship with Haruka and the feeling that she stole Takayuki. She seeks comfort often because she almost never receives it from Takayuki, so she turns to drinking. By the end of the story, she has convinced herself that the only way out of her situation is to cut all ties and leave Takayuki to his true love.
Akane Suzumiya (涼宮 茜 Suzumiya Akane)?, (Seiyū: Kaori Mizuhashi, credited as Tomomi Uehara, VA: Leah Clark)
Haruka's younger sister, she initially treats both Takayuki and Mitsuki as older siblings until she finds out they have been seeing each other behind the comatose Haruka's back. While Haruka is in the hospital, she visits her every day. She, like Mitsuki, is a powerful swimmer in her own right, but feels as if she can never match Mitsuki. Her intense hatred towards Mitsuki after the accident can be attributed to the feeling of personal betrayal by someone she considered an idol for throwing away her talent and dreams as well as Mitsuki's sexual relationship with Takayuki. She is confused and angry that once her sister wakes from her coma Takayuki suddenly has an interest in her. She is upset and unaware that the reason Takayuki failed to vist Haruka those three years she was in a coma is because Haruka's parents had banned him from visiting her. But she does go on to live her dream to become one of the worlds best swimmer.
Shinji Taira (平 慎二 Taira Shinji)?, (Seiyū: Masaki Andou, VA: David Wilson-Brown)
Friends with Takayuki, Haruka and Mitsuki in high school, he drifts off from the group after graduation, though he becomes an important character towards the end of the series. It is very likely once had a crush on Mitsuki.
Ayu Daikuuji (大空寺 あゆ Daikūji Ayu)?, (Seiyū: Kiyomi Asai, VA: Luci Christian) and Mayu Tamano (玉野 まゆ Tamano Mayu)?, (Seiyū: Kozue Yoshizumi, credited as Kyouko Yoshida, VA: Monica Rial)
Two waitresses who work at the same restaurant as Takayuki. Ayu is the surly daughter of the chief executive officer of the "Sky Temple" (Same last name as Ayu) financial group, who owns and operates the restaurant chain and is permitted to work at the restaurant as part of a market study by the financial group on the condition she does not reveal her identity [5] (the only reason she keeps her job). She works in order to experience society. Mayu is a soft-spoken but well-meaning klutz who has lost her parents and older brother. While in the game they served as one of the many love interests, in the anime they provide the only comic relief for this otherwise serious series. After the credits of several episodes in the series, a 30-second short known as the "Ayu-Mayu Theater" shows them in a comical situation totally irrelevant to the main story with all characters super deformed. They are also known as AyuAyu and MayuMayu.
Hotaru Amakawa (天川 蛍 Amakawa Hotaru?, (Seiyū: Satoko Kubota, VA: Alison Viktorin), Fumio Hoshino (星乃 文緒 Hoshino Fumiō?, (Seiyū: Hitomi, credited as Minami Hokuto , VA: Jamie Marchi) and Manami Homura (穂村 愛美 Homura Manami?, (Seiyū: Amako Mari, VA: Amy Rosenthal)
Three nurses at the hospital. Hotaru and Fumio attended nursing school together and are very close friends. Hotaru Amakawa suffers from a terminal illness that stopped her physical development and looks like a very young girl. The two are inseparable and Amakawa is often referred to as "Fumio's child" for a nickname, as Hotaru has a very child like stature where as Fumio has a very curvy and maternal stature. Manami, the green haired nurse, is a student nurse who attended the same high school, although two years behind, Takayuki. Manami has a very strong mothering instinct with a desire to take care of people, hence her chosen profession. In the game Manami is introduced in the first chapter and also is in love with Takayuki, but is also too shy to express her feelings for him. In the game, all three are potential love interests. The original Manami ending with the CD was so disturbing that fans wrote to the company calling the ending nightmarish, so in the DVD and PS2 versions of the game, a new ending was added for Manami. In the series, Manami's role is reduced to one line and several silent cameos including a spoof of Ringu in one "Ayu-Mayu Theater" segment where Manami comes out of the TV. Amakawa is given several short scenes in the hospital, where she drops many sexual innuendos into her conversations with Takayuki. Fumio is given a very important scene towards the end involving a conversation with Takayuki, over tea, regarding not realizing how much you love someone who is always by your side until they are gone.

Game

The game is played from the viewpoint of Takayuki with the player controlling his actions. Much of the game's dialog involves an introspective view of Takayuki's thoughts on what he is feeling and what he thinks the other characters might be thinking or feeling. The original PC version, Dreamcast version, PS2, and DVD versions of the game are played in two chapters, with the first chapter revolves around the events leading up to August 27 and the second chapter set 3 years later.


It is in the second chapter that the game allows the player to choose to pursue one of eight girls in the game and also has endings if the player chooses to pursue more than one of the girls at the same time. The original game and the Dreamcast version has 14 endings. Some fans complained about the disturbing Manami ending was too disturbing and nightmarish, in which she kidnaps and tortures Takayuki, sodomizing and urinating on him and forcing while dressing him in girl's clothing and forcing him to undergo gender reassignment surgeries so he can be closer to his "Mommy" (Manami), reducing him to a child-like state. An additional ending was added where Takayuki professing his "Pure Love" for her causes her to become pregnant with his child. An additional two "bad" endings were added for Mitsuki in the DVD version and the Dreamcast and PS2 versions had the explicit sex scenes removed.


The Kimi ga Nozomu Eien ~special FanDisk~ released on June 25, 2004 contains "Kimi ga Nozomu Daiisshou (君が望む第一章 "The first chapter you desired"), a retelling of the first chapter of the game allowing for greater control over Takayuki's actions (allowing the player to prevent the accident or end up with someone else altogether). It also includes a collection of short stories featuring surrounding the game's various characters, a game version of True Lies from the Kimi ga Nozomu Eien Drama Theatre vol. 4 Radio Special, the Kiminozo Rajio Shucchouban (君のぞらじお出張版) radio special, a parody of Muv-Luv Extra called Muv-Nozo (マブノゾ) featuring Kimi ga Nozomu Eien's characters and a version of the puzzle game Marii no Okataduke 2: Ayumayu Funtou-hen (マリーのおかたづけ2 あゆまゆ奮闘編). is the 176th day of the year (177th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Chapter 1: July - August 27, 1998

With the exception of the Fandisk version, the first chapter is played like a prologue to the second chapter. Regardless of player actions; Mitsuki and Shinji set Takayuki up with the bashful Haruka. Takayuki ends up in bed with a nude sprawled out Haruka and suffers "performance anxiety" due to over analyzing the situation, thus not consummating their relationship in this chapter. Mitsuki stops Takayuki on her birthday and has him buy her a ring which results in him being late for his date with Haruka ending up getting hit by a car at the end of the chapter.


Although the above events always take place there are quite a bit of decisions to make and the game spends quite a bit of time developing the type of relationships Takayuki has between Akane, Haruka, Mitsuki, and Manami (if the player doesn't choose to ignore her in this chapter).


Chapter 2: Three Years Later

There are no choices for the player to make until the shower scene involving Mitsuki and Takayuki on July 29'th. Mitsuki has been taking care of Takayuki and they have formed a sort of relationship. Takayuki has also taken a part time job at Daikuuji (Sky Temple) Family restaurant. After 3 years Haruka's father contacts Takayuki to tell him that Haruka has come out of her coma and is asking to see him. The player can choose to pursue a number of the female characters with the following endings [6]:


Haruka:

  • Mitsuki sleeps with Shinji, then visits Haruka in the hospital and leaves the ring Takayuki originally bought for her birthday behind. She leaves town and becomes a teacher. Takayuki and Haruka end up together, with the four friends eventually meeting again on the hill, except the ring is on Haruka's left ring finger and Takayuki's hand is on her shoulder.

Mitsuki:

  • Good ending has where Mitsuki and Takayuki having a child together. Haruka writes her children's book and Mitsuki reads it to her son (the anime ending is a slightly modified version of this ending, leaving out the child, incorporating elements of Akane's good ending and Haruka's ending).
  • Mitsuki gets pregnant and Haruka dies.
  • Takayuki never forgives her for sleeping with Shinji and treats Mitsuki as a sex slave (DVD only).
  • Mitsuki performs sexual acts in a dog outfit (DVD only).

Akane:

  • Good ending
  • Haruka becomes pregnant after she and Takayuki sleep together when she comes out of the first coma. Haruka doesn't come out of the second coma and Akane acts as a surrogate mother for Haruka's child.
  • Akane gets hit and ends up in a coma, with the cycle repeating itself (Haruka taking Mitsuki's place).
  • "Haruka as the hidden wife," where Akane tells Haruka about the relationship between herself and Takayuki after she comes out of the second coma. Haruka seduces Takayuki in the hospital and becomes his mistress.

Manami:

  • A very disturbing ending which involves Manami kidnapping and torturing Takayuki.
  • Takayuki confeses his "Pure Love" for Manami and she ends up pregnant.

Amakawa:

  • Amakawa looks like a little girl because of a serious terminal medical condition. Her wish is to find a boyfriend and have sex with him before she dies (which Takayuki does before she passes away).

Fumio:

  • Bad ending only.

Ayu and Mayu have two endings each, one good and one bad.


Anime

A 14-episode TV anime based on the game and animated and produced by Studio Fantasia first aired across Japan from October 5, 2003 to January 4, 2004 with the erotic elements from the game greatly toned down and cut to two sex scenes with Takayuki and Haruka (the second mostly showing just a large scar on Haruka's chest running between her breasts post coma that isn't present in the game), three scenes with Mitsuki and Takayuki, a scene with Akane and Mitsuki (Not in the game) where Mitsuki is depicted nude on Takayuki's futon, and a scene with Mitsuki and Shinji (the latter two not being in the game). Image File history File links Broom_icon. ... Animé redirects here. ... Studio Fantasia ) is a Japanese animation studio. ... For other uses, see 5th October (Serbia). ... Year 2003 (MMIII) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ... is the 4th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 2004 (MMIV) was a leap year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


The anime provides a realistic depiction of PTSD and presents a believable, although painful, depiction of the effects the disorder have on personal relationships of those who suffer through this disorder. Takayuki arrives as the ambulance takes Haruka away from the scene and he witnesses the still fresh pool of blood next to Haruka's bloodied hair ribbons laying among the shattered glass of a phone booth as the officer in charge of the scene identifies Haruka from her student ID. This traumatic experience causes Takayuki's PTSD and he is affected more than Mitsuki and Akane. Takayuki and Mitsuki both experience flashbacks, emotional detachment or numbing of feelings (emotional self-mortification or dissociation), insomnia, avoidance of reminders and extreme distress when exposed to the reminders ("triggers"), loss of appetite (Takayuki), feelings of misplaced guilt, memory loss (may appear as difficulty paying attention), excessive startle responses, clinical depression, and anxiety three years after Haruka's accident. Akane suffers from hypervigilance, misplaced guilt, and irritability. Haruka herself is left in a coma for three years and suffers from anterograde amnesia. Anterograde amnesia is a form of amnesia, or memory loss, in which new events are not transferred from short-term memory to long-term memory. ...


The plot consist of a blend of multiple game storylines, mostly the Mitsuki storyline with a bit of Haruka's storyline mixed with elements from the Akane storyline. The general fate of Amakawa is also disclosed through one scene between Fumio and Takayuki and a line by Fumio at the end of the final episode indicating she died. Manami is limited to one line at the very end and several dialogless cameos. Material not included in the game due to the game being first person, such as depictions of Mitsuki having sex with Shinji and Haruka telling Mitsuki that she has a crush on Takayuki while walking home, are also included.


Before Haruka's accident

This timeline is mostly contained in the first two episodes and covers the development of the relationship between Haruka, Mitsuki, Shinji, and Takayuki in their third year of high school (In Japan high school runs grades 10-12 with students entering high school at age 15 or 16). Akane is also introduced.


Later episodes however do flashback prior to the beginning of this timeline and also flashback to this timeline itself and depict photographs of events that happen in this timeline but are not shown, for example the photograph of Mitsuki, Akane, Haruka, and Takayuki at the pool.


In flashbacks; Haruka and Mitsuki are walking home. Haruka reveals to Mitsuki, after Mitsuki drags it out of her, that she is completely in love with Takayuki (It is revealed in a later scene that she will have no one else but Takayuki turning down all other boys hence why Mitsuki "helps") prompting Mitsuki to respond with a thoughtful "I see", in the English dub she affirmatively states she has a crush on Takayuki. In another flashback scene Haruka and Mitsuki pretend to get into a serious fight over Haruka videotaping Mitsuki's swimming meet to show to Akane. It is disclosed that Haruka and Mitsuki are best friends and they claim they would never let anything come between them. The final flashback prior to the start of episode one involves Takayuki meeting a very bashful Haruka in the bookstore. She is trying to reach for a book but is not quite tall enough. Takayuki pulls the book off the shelf and tries to give it to her but she becomes startled and almost falls completely backwards while blushing.


The series opens with Takayuki laying under a cherry tree on top of a hill overlooking the town and Mitsuki and Haruka at the pool. Shinji meets him at the top of the hill and asks him to accompany him to school on a Sunday because he forgot a reference book. Shinji and Takayuki have a discussion about colleges and Takayuki discloses he is going to test for an out of the way less prestigious college because his grades are too low to automatically advance into the college attached to the school they are currently attending through the elevator system, hence would have to pass the entrance exam for it (In Japan students have to pass rigorous entrance exams for junior high, high school, and college if they are transferring to a different school. Some schools are set up, attached to universities, so that once the student tests into the school system once they no longer have to pass the rigorous entrance exams between them provided their grades are acceptable. This practice is known as the elevator system.).


Shinji and Takayuki meet Haruka and Mitsuki at school as they leave the pool area after Mitsuki's swim practice. Mitsuki and Shinji try to get Takayuki to notice Haruka but instead he jokes that he's in love with Shinji and flirts with Mitsuki. Haruka runs off in the middle of this interaction.


Mitsuki then arranges for Haruka and Takayuki to meet in Takayuki's favorite spot, the tree on top of the hill. Takayuki believes Mitsuki is going to confess her love for him when Haruka shows up. Instead of Mitsuki confessing her love Haruka does and asks if he will date her then breaks down into tears. After briefly thinking of Mitsuki he agrees to date her most likely out of sympathy for Haruka and also more likely to get closer to Mitsuki.


Mitsuki latter that night calls Takayuki and is both surprised and somewhat disappointed that he agreed to date Haruka. She tells him that Haruka is a very dear friend of hers and that he had better not hurt her. Haruka and Takayuki begin to date each other however initially their "dating" consists of the two only awkwardly walking home together and outings (in the dub it is specified as one outing) with all four friends where Haruka sits next to Mitsuki while Takayuki sits next to Shinji. Finally Takayuki becomes impatient with the relationship and tries to first start a conversation with her about her hobbies, then hold Haruka's hand, then finally he grabs her arm. Haruka startled and embarrassed by this runs off. Shinji and Mitsuki try to fix their relationship by setting the two up alone on a date at a movie the next day. Takayuki however fails to ask Haruka out after she said she was thinking about spending time with her sister instead but was more or less begging him to ask her out so she could get out of it. This encounter ends with Haruka running home in tears and Shinji and Mitsuki, who had followed the two, confront Takayuki about half-heartedly dating her.


Later that evening Haruka calls him and asks if he likes her to which he replies he doesn't know. A day passes and Takayuki has a conversation with Mitsuki where she reveals that the only reason why she became friends with Shinji and Takayuki was so that Haruka could get close to him. Takayuki reflects on his relationship with Haruka and comes to realize that he does in fact like her. He finally finds her at the train station and drags her on top of the hill. She is afraid that he is breaking up with her so she covers her ears, so she can't hear the words and begs him to stop. Instead he tells her that he does like her very much and would like to start over. She tells him "No", she wouldn't give up the time they spent because it led to her hearing him honestly admit he has feelings for her.


Takayuki and Haruka eventually develop an intimate relationship. Akane is partially responsible pushing Takayuki along when he needs a shove in the right direction. On their first meeting Takayuki notes that Akane looks like Haruka but has a very similar personality to Mitsuki. Akane starts calling Takayiki big brother and insists that she has always wanted a big brother and when he marries Haruka, even though he is flawed, he would be passable.


The night before the summer festival Mitsuki calls Takayuki but doesn't leave a message nor does she return any of his three return phone calls. Worried about Mitsuki he goes and meets her at the pool to talk to her. Even though he has a date with Haruka he takes Mitsuki to the top of the hill. Mitsuki tells him that a boy has asked her out, but that she wants to stay true to her feelings. She reveals to him that many boys ask her out and they all claim they love her long hair. Only one boy has ever told her that he thought she would look good with short hair. Takayuki asks her what her feelings were for that one boy to which she responds "I don't know" and before she can elaborate on her answer Shinji and Haruka interrupt their conversation. Haruka had thought that Takayuki had stood her up when Shinji found her at the festival. Haruka thanks Takayuki for being such a good friend to Mitsuki who needed cheering up. Mitsuki then offers to pay for everyone at the festival for making such a mess after they take a picture of the four of them on the hill.


After the festival Takayuki and Haruka end up alone in her room. Takayuki comments that she has a large collection of picture books when Haruka admits that she wishes to go to the local college to study child psychology in order to become a good children's book author. Takayuki makes her promise that when she becomes an author she should write a story about all four of them. They start making out and Haruka ends up naked on her bed about to consummate their relationship. Akane and her parents come home and interrupt the two, who very quickly clothe themselves. Haruka apologizes for the interruption, however Takayuki tells her not to worry about it as there is no reason to rush that as they have plenty of time. They perform a ritual that involves holding hands and reciting a poem about always being together even when they are apart as long as they don't forget in their hearts instead.


On August 27th, Takayuki is in the bookstore and finds the book that Haruka was reaching for when he first met her while picking up a college exam prepbook. He decides to buy that book and then meets Shinji. Shinji shares the photos of the four of them on top of the hill. Takayuki then tells Shinji he is studying for the college entrance exam and he asks him if it was because of Haruka, to which he answers yes. After meeting Shinji he is running a little late for his date with Haruka. Mitsuki, slightly depressed, meets him on his way and asks him to buy her a birthday present. He explains that he is running late for his date but stops anyways to humor her. She asks for a silver ring for her birthday, which at first he questions but in the end buys it for her because he wanted to get her the present she wanted (In Japan silver rings, called pair or couple rings, are given on special occasions, such as birthdays or Christmas, to girls by their boyfriends. ) .


Running late on his way to meeting up with Haruka turns into tragedy when Haruka becomes involved in a very serious automobile accident and as a result falls into a coma. Takayuki arrives as the ambulance takes Haruka away from the scene and witnesses the still fresh pool of blood next to Haruka's bloodied hair ribbons as the officer in charge of the scene identifies Haruka from her student ID. This timeline ends with all the friends at the hospital with a shot of Takayuki collapsed on the floor and Mitsuki wearing the ring that Takayuki bought on her left ring finger, much like an engagement ring (Unlike the US, the left ring finger is not reserved for engagement, wedding, chastity rings, or less common promise rings in Japan.).


One year later

This timeline is seen only through flashbacks, mostly in episode 5.


Takayuki is a complete mess. He has lost his appetite, forgets to lock his door, isn't sleeping, has been drained of all volition and emotion. He spends his days sitting vigilantly at Haruka's bedside waiting for her to come out of her coma. Mitsuki begins to take care of him because she has feelings for him which she has always kept hidden but also out of guilt. One day after making sure Takayuki has food to eat during her lunch break she runs late and runs into Shinji. Shinji gives her a ride and asks her how she is doing. She admits that she has given up her aspirations and dreams of becoming a swimmer and only focuses on taking care of Takayuki and work since the accident. He tells her that this is not healthy for her or Takayuki and she should just leave Takayuki to his own devices if she wants him to get better and that she should not feel guilty about the accident because it was not her fault. As she touches the ring on her finger she tells him it was all her fault.


A few days later Akane meets Mitsuki and asks her to watch a tape of her swimming and critique her form. They have lunch and Akane tells her that it wasn't right that the coaches still comment about how Mitsuki threw her talent away for a boy. Akane tells her that they didn't understand and thanks Mitsuki for taking care of her big brother and big sister. She reluctantly agrees to watch the tape and watches it at Takayuki's apartment after cooking him dinner and leaving it for him. She breaks down into tears after seeing Akane swim. Takayuki comes home and she tells him they should go out and have some fun tomorrow by visiting the aquarium. He emotionlessly agrees and spends the day with her. She sees a swimmer at the aquarium which triggers an avoidance reaction from her prompting them to leave the aquarium. On the way out she begs Takayuki to buy a set of mugs, a dolphin mug and an octopus mug which he reluctantly agrees to. She leaves him at the station and he thanks her for forcing him to get outside telling her he had fun. She goes into town but he decides to walk around a bit. He sees a poster for the book that Haruka wanted which triggers a reaction that leads to his complete mental break down.


Takayuki visits Haruka in the hospital after completely breaking down. He tells the unconscious Haruka that the author of that book is in town for a festival and he is going to keep his promise and they will get a signed copy of the book. He then lifts Haruka out of the hospital bed so he can carry her comatose form to the festival that moment. He struggles with the hospital staff while carrying her out of the hospital and is finally brought out of his episode when the doctor slaps him. Haruka's parents tell him that they know how he feels about their daughter but, for his own sake and Haruka's he is banned from visiting her. Mitsuki, who was worried about him as he didn't show up for dinner, looks for him finally ending up at the hospital, walks him home.


When Mitsuki gets him home Takayuki is at rock bottom. She tells him that she can't continue like they are as it is unbearable to see him like that anymore. She admits that she has always loved him and strips naked and desperately offers herself as a replacement for Haruka by exclaiming "Am I not good enough" and throwing herself naked into his arms. They have sex. The next couple of days Mitsuki cuts her hair short, as Takayuki was the only boy to tell her that she would look good with short hair, and they make love over the next couple of days. Takayuki begins to recover after this and decides to leave his apartment on his own, to buy food, and decides to take a part time job at the restaurant.


Akane, worried about Takayuki, because he hadn't visited her sister over the last couple of days, apparently no one told her he was banned, goes to check on him. She finds the apartment unlocked and lets herself in to find a nude Mitsuki in Takayuki's futon. She accuses them of duping everyone the whole time and runs off.


Three years later

This timeline begins sometime before April three years after the accident. Mitsuki goes to visit Takayuki at the restaurant so that they and Shinji can get together after he gets off work to drink and remember the good times. Ayu and Mayu along with the manager are introduced in a very humorous scene. After Takayuki finishes his shift he walks Mitsuki to the bar. On the walk to the bar Takayuki notes that Mitsuki is being very quiet especially after they haven't seen each other in such a long time, implying that the two have not been together since Akane saw Mitsuki naked on his futon.


Shinji, Takayuki, and Mitsuki get drunk and Mitsuki asks Takayuki, cuddling up to his shoulder, if they can walk together as she wants to be by him longer. They end up at his apartment then start to make out and Mitsuki asks about the shower but Takayuki tells her it is not necessary, an in-reference to the game as this sex scene takes place in the shower during the game. Mitsuki asks Takayuki if they could live together in the middle of the night in a different place. Takayuki tells her that this is unreasonable as they probably couldn't afford it. The next morning Takayuki asks Mitsuki if she would be willing to move in to his apartment. She tells him they don't want to rush that as she leaves, and she notes the apartment has not changed in three years as she leaves. Her boss chides her at work the next day for not bringing a change of clothes.


The next day the two of them eat out at a restaurant. Mitsuki tells him they can't keep going on like they are and asks him if he likes her. He hesitantly tells her he does. She tells him she is glad that he likes her. He asks her about moving in again and she tells him to forget about it, that it was a joke and she lets him walk her to the train station where they run into Akane in front of the spot where Haruka was hit. Seeing Akane triggers a reaction in Mitsuki while seeing the spot of the accident triggers a reaction for Takayuki at the train station. Their relationship goes downhill from there. It becomes so strained that he calls her at work on the company phone. He asks her to meet him at the train station in April. They meet and he tells her that he's not trying to forget about Haruka but that they need to move on with their life together. They start to look at advertisements for apartments so they can start their new life together. Even though they say they will move in together over the next three months they can't decide on an apartment.


Haruka reawakens from her coma, oblivious to the goings-on of the previous three years. In addition, she is diagnosed with anterograde amnesia. The doctors ask that she be kept uninformed of what has happened in order to protect her fragile psyche. After a month Akane calls Takayuki to tell him Haruka is awake. He tells Mitsuki that he will not go see her but Mitsuki insists that they both go see her because if he doesn't he will regret it for the rest of his life and she doesn't want him reverting to the wreck that he was before. Even though she has been awake for a month Haruka's memory is not improving. She can't remember anything that happens for more than a few moments and is stuck thinking it is three years ago as if time has stood still for her. The doctor warns them that her condition is very fragile and informs them of the condition of her memory before they enter the room. She tells them not to let her know that three years have passed because she feels the shock would damage her fragile psyche, possibly destroying her will to recover, and trigger a relapse. Anterograde amnesia is a form of amnesia, or memory loss, in which new events are not transferred from short-term memory to long-term memory. ...


Memories of his relationship with Haruka flood his mind as he enters the room. Standing dazed in a flashback he doesn't move to her side until Mitsuki pushes him. He falls to her side and breaks down into tears holding her hand while Akane gives both Mitsuki and him the glare of death. After not recalling Mitsuki has also come to visit, moments after they arrive, the doctor cuts off visiting hours for the day. Akane asks for a word with both of them outside. She explosively expresses her anger that both of them came to see her sister calling Takayuki a coward for not having the strength to be by her side and telling Mitsuki she has no right to be there after betraying her sister.


Haruka improves after seeing Takayuki, the only thing she can remember since the accident is Takayuki's visit. He sees her a second time and her parents tell him that although they have no right to ask him to continue to see their daughter, in fact they were surprised he even came to see her again, he is what she needs and asks that he visit as frequently as he can.


Takayuki is conflicted with his feelings of guilt and responsibility and must choose between Mitsuki and Haruka. The bulk of the rest of the story focuses on the suffering of the characters because of this predicament.

English Distribution

The anime was later licensed for American distribution by FUNimation Entertainment under the title Rumbling Hearts: Kiminozo [7]. Rumbling Hearts is the title of the game's theme song and the title of the PS2 release of the game [8] while Kiminozo is an abbreviation for the name of the franchise. The North American release also used the tagline "Betrayal is a Bitch" included on the back of each DVD. The first two English dubbed episodes of the show are available for free, along with a significant amount of clips of the other episode, on the official FUNimation website [9]. The series also ran on the 24/7 line-up version of the FUNimation Channel but not on any of the syndicated blocks in 2007. Image File history File links Unbalanced_scales. ...

The writers for the English Dub took a very liberal approach while producing the script [10] taking creative license in many places resulting in an extremely interpretive script [11] for the English dub which at several points reworks the dialog to have the characters say the opposite thing[12] from the original version changing plot points[13]. The writers took a different approach to the translation for the subtitle script in the North American release producing a script which is faithful to the original work, going as far as including honorifics [14]. The English dub dialog is different from the subtitles provided on the same disk. Some examples include;

  • Leaving out exposition, such as in chapter 3 the exposition that Mitsuki and Takayuki have not seen each other in a long time.
  • Changes portions of the plot, like in episode five where Mitsuki strips naked and desperately offers herself as a replacement for Haruka to Takayiki by saying "Am I not good enough" in the subtitles, is a "Do you love me" in the dub. This plot point is important because it is revisited in episode 12.
  • The English dub portrays Takayuki's and Mitsuki's relationship as heating up when Takayuki calls her at work the months before Haruka wakes up but in the subtitles it is falling apart.
  • Takayuki has already read the picture book, telling Haruka it is his favorite story, in episode 2 in the dub, thus would already know the plot and wouldn't need Haruka to tell him the plot in the episode 14.
  • Ayu is made younger by making it so she just got her drivers license when she has had her drivers license for three years without an accident or ticket (This makes her at least 21 years old as one must be at least 18 years old to test for his or her driver's license in Japan [15]), albeit because she has never driven, thus receiving a gold license. It is also inferred in both versions that Mayu can also test for the drivers license.
  • Takayuki constantly refers to Mitsuki as "Babe" in the dub. In the subtitles he never refers to her by any pet names at all.
  • Expletives and slang are present in the dub but not the subtitles for example; Shinji calls Takayuki a "Tool" in episode 1 in the dub where as the subtitles do not include this and there are several instances where other characters refer to Mitsuki as a "Bitch" in the dub but not the subtitles.

In addition to the differences in dialog there is also a difference in displayed level of affect between the Japanese and English voicework, for the most part Takayuki's Japanese voice actor portrays him as generally emotionally numb (emotional disassociated), consistent with PTSD, where as the English voice actor does not [16].

Haruka, Mitsuki, and Akane are members of special task force A-01, also known as the Isumi Valkyries, and Homura Manami is a nurse at the Yokohama base. Mitsuki and Akane pilot senjutsuki, but Haruka is the command post officer. Takayuki is also mentioned. He was killed in action prior to the start of the game, King of Hetare to the end.


In the epilogue, Haruka and Mitsuki can be seen walking around together near the station, Mitsuki with her pre-accident hairstyle. This suggests that the events of Kimi ga Nozomu Eien may be taken by future games to have never happened, allowing for Mitsuki and Haruka to show up as best friends in newer games as they did in Alternative. It also suggests that all of Kimi go Nozomu Eien takes place in the version of the Extra world corrupted by the flow of influence from the Alternative world (as the final Extra world is supposedly one restored to its rightful form). It is possible that Haruka's accident in Kimi ga Nozomu Eien was caused by the influence of Haruka's death in the Alternative world brought by Takeru to the Extra world (this theory assumes that cause and effect would be affected by things in the Alternative world that would happen in the future, though, as Haruka died after Takeru returned from the Extra world).


Haruka and Mitsuki both die in the Alternative world during the Yokohama base battle. Haruka is killed in action by one of the BETA while trying to shut down the hive reactor, and Mitsuki sacrifices herself to destroy it by manually detonating the S-11 bombs shortly after.


In the all-ages version of Muv-Luv Alternative, Mitsuki's death scene has full voice acting for Takeru added on.
